Officer uses Taser to subdue man

By Lauren Bucher

This article was published April 15, 2012 at 10:47 a.m.

A man was charged with disorderly conduct, third-degree assault, public intoxication and resisting arrest after attempting to attack an officer Friday.

An officer responded to a disturbance call to a residence on Clark Street Friday afternoon and found Alma Garrett and Kiwan Dandridge, 33, involved in a verbal argument on the front porch of the house. Garrett had picked up a stick and was shielding herself from Dandridge, who kept charging at her, according to the report from the Pulaski County sheriff's office.

The officer ordered Dandridge to come down off the porch. Dandridge replied with profanity, and when the officer attempted to step up onto the porch, Dandridge charged at him with balled fists and tried to attack him. The officer used a Taser on him, and Dandridge fell into the grassy area next to the porch. Dandridge was arrested and later taken to UAMS Medical Center.

Garrett said that her nephew, Dandridge, had been drinking all day and had been walking down the street yelling.

Dandridge apologized for attempting to hit the officer and admitted that he was under the influence of narcotics while he was en route to the hospital. Dandridge was taken to the jail and did not remember any of the events that led to his arrest, according to the report.

I sure wish there was video of the tasering, That is some funny stuff. And yes people I have been tasered and yes even on video of me being tasered its FUNNY. In order to use a taser everyone should HAVE to be tasered in order to know what is happening to the other. Still .....funny stuff.

How is it that he apologizes for his actions and admits he was under the influence of narcotics on the way to the hospital, yet when taken to jail he had no recollection of his actions ?? Too funny.

You have the right to OBEY direct commands from an officer OR you have the right to pay for not doing so.... ;0
